What problem are we trying to solve by doing this or what added
functionality will we get that people can't get by just downloading a
snapshot and importing it into git themselves?
Downloading a snapshot of what? The entire repo? Do we have that
actually available? Even if so, it's still not an incremental grab.
Not that I'm fully sold on mirroring our pkgcvs data across multiple
SCMs, both from a disk space and a maintenance perspective.
